That’s not a river, that’s Araneta Avenue
After Glenda in August, it is now tropical storm Mario’s (International name Fung-Wong) turn to drench Metro Manila and other nearby provinces and cities. We are used to these scenarios every time a storm comes: rains flood houses, trees are brought down, and electrical wirings are short-circuited. As of 9 a.m. this morning, PAGASA issued a red rainfall warning to Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, and Laguna. People are alarmed. But then again, who wouldn’t be?
Here are photos showing the storm’s wrath.
